2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA45: Yours in sedan or wagon

The 2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA45 is available as a sedan (sorry, 4-door coupe) and wagon (sorry, shooting brake), but the latter only in Europe, sadly.

Likes the A45 hatch, the Mercedes-AMG CLA45 has a 2L turbo I4 with 285kW (387hp) and 480Nm (354 lb-ft). There’s also a CLA45 S with 301kW (421hp) and 500Nm (369 lb-ft).

AWD, 8-speed DCT, and AMG tuned suspension are standard on both variants.

The standard CLA45 has 350mm front discs with 4 piston calipers, and 330mm rear discs. The CLA45 S has 360mm front discs with 6 piston calipers.

0-100km/h in the CLA45 takes 4.1s, and in the CLA45 S this is reduced to 4s. Top speed in the CLA45 is 250km/h (155mph), and in the CLA45 S it’s 270km/h (168mph).
